No matter if you play AFL, NRL or Soccer, football is a high intensity, contact sport with a high injury rate. Football is a game that spans generations from school kids to senior teams, it is enjoyed by people of all ages. As we get older our love for the game might not change but our bodies certainly do, particularly our knees and hamstrings. Whether it’s a sport injury or just wear and tear you might need a little more support if you want to keep playing out on the footy field.
Our supports and braces promote the transportation of oxygen to your muscles to speed up muscle regeneration. Protecting you from pulled muscles, torn ligaments and sprained joints, allowing you to stay in the game.
Don’t just take our word for it, Geelong AFL Star Shaun Higgins says, “For me, it’s all about the game and Thermoskin is a major part of my preparation off the field. The supports are comfortable to wear so I stay focused and feel confident.”
